The Pure
New Poems From the USA

 

And no
We begin to inform
There’s no alternative
It’s cold
The rice old
The plague—

So to negotiate
The signs
Of wreckage
The third degree
Ask the postman
To come for breakfast
The nonsense ends
Beyond the sun
Barks
For a tutelary spirit
Designs the den
To withstand
Any premises
Any magazine rights
Any OK
Improper
Indubitable
Unfamiliar
Fork in the road
Onions of
Road
Reason of
Previous evaluation
Soft to touch
To will
